V Power - crazy prices, and rising
« on: November 23, 2021, 04:12:48 pm »
Just curious, how much is V power where you live?

It's £1.65 where I live in Suffolk.  I reckon it will be £2 by the end of the year  :stupid:

I haven't checked Tesco 99 lately, but is that massively rising in price as well?

Tesco 99 - 1.51 in Cardiff.

Not checked v power for a while, on the m5 south bound before the fuel mayhem it was about 1.65, I bet its about 1.80 now or something silly.

162 near me. Can't remember what Tesco 99 is but I am sure it's around 150

It's £1,63 for V Power in Bristol. I asked the cashier why it's gone up again in the space of a week but she thinks it will go down soon but other petrol stations need to all do it in line cause they all follow suit .

Paid £1.62 for Esso 99 last week, won't fill up for a couple of weeks so dare say fuel prices would have jumped up again by then.
They really are making up for lost time last year aren't they...

I'm old school  - That's £7.50 a Gallon!

Always the further from a refinery is more expensive - I'm lucky to have Grangemouth just up the valley from me

Next fill up is going to be at Costco - should be 5p a litre cheaper than anywhere local.
During lockdown their poverty unleaded was 99p per litre - brought back fond memories of the naughties!

Currently in the US they are moaning about their smaller US Gallon being $4.50, converting our price + volume it would be $8.33

£1.58 here in Pontefract.
Hope it comes down again soon... fortunately I don’t do the mileage.

Probably a sign of the time though, won’t be long before they’re all converted to electric charging stations!
Getting too old for this...

Think I'll drop down to Shell 95 for a while then as there are 5 of them on my daily route.  Tesco 99 is an utter ball ache to get and I'd end up burning off any cost savings sitting in traffic :grin:

I get through a tank a week, so £85 x 4 isn't pleasant.

I probably get 2 chances to hit more than 3psi of boost per 80 mile round trip, so 95 unleaded isn't the end of the world.  Everyone drives like some kind of retarded road slug these days. Speed limits are apparently optional now.

I heard on the radio last night the price hikes are blamed on OPEC throttling supplies.  Who'd have predicted that as EVs become more mainstream  :grin:

£1.54 for Momentum when I looked yesterday. Thankfully I do so few miles it doesn't really matter, a full tank will last over 2 months. I live on a terraced street with no off road parking but me and the Mrs have discussed selling our cars and getting a fully electric car to share, need to see how we'd go about charging it before deciding.
